Samsung Galaxy S5 specs and release date

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cell Phones, Google, Handhelds

Samsung Galaxy S5

As expected, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S5 at its Unpacked event on Monday. This time around, the company focused more on the practical hardware features of the smartphone, as opposed to the bell-and-whistle show we got with the Galaxy S4--we're talking about faster connectivity, a great display, durable build, and camera features that anyone can appreciate.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 packs in a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 1080p resolution, with a 2.5GHz quad-core CPU, and running Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The battery in the device hold 2800mAh of power, and it's paired alongside a "Super Power Save" mode that'll turn off battery-draining features and turn the display black-and-white in instances where you absolutely want to stretch out your battery life for as long as you can.

BlackBerry A10

Looks like Blackberry is hard at work on its next flagship smartphone, the BlackBerry A10 (codename Aristo.) An image of the device, leaked to BGR, portrays the A10 as a 5-inch upgrade from the current Z10, featuring sleeker curves and running upgraded software, BlackBerry 7.2. We're looking at a 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display, and sports an unspecified dual-core processor. While that's just about the extent of what we know about the device, we're sure that we'll be hearing more about it in short order.

What do you think? Will the BlackBerry A10 help bring BlackBerry back to relevance? Is it a device you are looking forward to hearing more about? Or is it too little, too late?

HTC One S: Dual core, unibody enclosure, awesome camera

The HTC One S, looks just like any other average phone on the market at first glance. It doesn’t feature the screen real estate that would make your plasma blush, or screaming specs to that blow your computer outta the water. Instead, what HTC has accomplished is that they've created a phone that meets anyone’s mobile needs. The phone features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a new 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (MSM8260A.) The HTC One S will be running Ice Cream Sandwich paired with the newest version of Sense UI, making it one of the still few smartphones to run Android 4.0.  Alongside the new processor, HTC has also beefed up its camera and software; the phone sports an 8 megapixel f/2.0 autofocus lens and HTC’s ImageChip. With the new improvements you’ll be able to shoot your videos in 1080p and simultaneously take snap shots. Lastly, and this is a cool one, the body is actually made by a plasma-heated micro arc oxidation process that results in a unidoby aluminum frame with a nice ceramic finish and helps this phone achieve its 7.9mm thinness. Throw in Beats Audio, and you've got hat amounts to a very capable smartphones in the One S. Expect this one to hit T-Mobile soon.

Check out a video that HTC put together of the One S after the break.
